if the state government does it, he doesn't think taxes should be raised and he's against the medicare advantage cuts. this is consistent for him since the beginning of the campaign. the problem is his rhetoric sounds like he objects to obama care on a much broader -- >> but, michael, the central issue is the individual mandate. >> that's right. >> and he's having it both ways on that, isn't he? >> well, sure. he's saying i like the individual mandate on the state level and i don't like it on the federal level. >> right. >> don't forget, this underlying philosophy that earlier this week he said we have care for the uninsured, they can go to the emergency rooms. a few years ago he said we can't have freeloaders going to the emergency room. there is, michael, i think some slicing and dicing he's trying to do. don't forget, two days ago he admits that the president actually has not raised taxes on the middle class. then yesterday he says to people attacking the president, and he says, middle class people, i'm going do all these things, but don't expect a big tax break. the guy has got to

the campaign about big issues, medicare and energized the base. but now it seems to be none of that happened and it was not -- maybe it was a pick that hurt the ticket. >> so i totally agree with ramesh here. i think that the ryan pick actually represented the romney campaign being a little bit spooked. partly spooked by people like us, the sort of punditocracy. >> i didn't know we had that much power. >> we seem to. i think up to that point romney was running a very disciplined campaign whose focus was pragmatism and managerial excellent and the romney pick said actually we're ideologues as well. and what i think we're seeing now is the romney campaign saying, no, no, we're about managerialism and pragmatics. >> i think the managerial and pragmatism is the only place for him to be. that's what's authentic about him. i think he ooh going to bin or loose on that battlefield and i think if he deviated from it. , that's going to cause iffyness. >> he has relationships with these people. it circles back to the conversation about media bias which is if the campaign is zigging and zagging, then it
